  • Student loans are a financial commitment spanning decades. We will examine how the monthly payment is determined, calculate the interest paid over the life of the loan, and look at the long-term effect of paying a small amount above the monthly payment. Common Core standards include geometric sequences, exponential growth, and compound interest.
